Awesome used for different purposes
"Awesome" is often used for nuanced purposes, and I've yet to see it explained somewhere. If you want to appear to be praising someone for their actions (theatre performance, parental advice to the youngsters, speech, America's Got Talent) the word is used. Gee, you were awesome gets to be used and overused to death, and hides the lie.
Romney's acceptance speech was awesome. So will be Obama's. The word covers your subtext, especially if your true response would be decidedly the opposite of approval. Yes, it's a useful word, and also a hypocritical word. But this cannot be put into the article (original research?)
